HM Revenue & Customs publishes estimates of the amount of Landfill Tax revenue lost as part of its annual Measuring Tax Gaps report. The most recent estimate gives a Landfill Tax gap of 18.4% of the theoretical Landfill Tax liability, or £150 million in the 2021 to 2022 tax year. The Landfill Tax gap is based on an experimental methodology and has high uncertainty.
